Nice van. Great colors.
I did the same sort of project when I worked for the UVA library (on my lunch hours). I scoured journals from a Virginia trucking association and the Southern States co-operative. Sadly, these were all both black-and-white, but I have a nice file of period-appropriate trucks for my 1953 interests. Will I ever get around to modeling them? Probably not.
Now I'm doing the same thing online and through books searching for British horse-drawn delivery vehicles circa 1930 for my Scottish O-scale narrow gauge railway. I have several old Adams/Revell/Glencoe O-scale wagon kits that will be a good parts source.
I have some photos of old junker and clunker trucks, most in color, and some dating from around 1950 and before. I'd be glad to share any of these photos that might be of use to you.
